Grey clouds

This is the video for “Graue Wolken” by Blumfeld. It’s a pretty song with a pretty video. Of the German people I know, there’s only a select handful that like Blumfeld. In fact, when I’ve told people that I like the group, there’s quite often a reaction like, “Pah! Why on earth do you like them?” Those same folks often mention the lyrics being the reason why they don’t like the group; but seeing as though I pay very little attention to the meaning of lyrics of songs sung in English, it really doesn’t bother me a jot what some German dudes are yakkin’ on about. As far as I can tell, this songs about grey clouds and, if I’m understand it correctly, being a bit glum.

  1. Lovely tune, minus the sax solo (twice!). Singer’s voice is reminiscent of both Roland Orzabal and Martin Gore.

    Thanks for sharing. Nice peak into the world of German pop.

  2. So glad you like Blumfeld! Too bad they split up this year. Their records have always meant a lot to me and I think their lyrics are actually very good. Blumfeld seem to be one of those bands that people either love or hate, nothing inbetween. I think Graue Wolken is basically about somebody frustrated with their dull and empty everyday life who feels he/she can’t take it much longer.
